Fermentation chamber temp controller
 
Almost got my ale ferm chamber built and trying to figure out which controller to buy. Im looking at these 2, http://www.pexsupply.com/Johnson-Con...-120-240v-SPDT
and http://www.climatedoctors.com/items/...?itemid=429705 . is one better then the other or is it just brand preference. I'll try to post some pic of the build in the next day or so.
Thanks for the help:tank:

those will both work fine, i don't know that there's any distinct advantage of one over the other.

Either of those controller will be fine for your build and are very comparable to each other. I have the Ranco for my fermentation chamber and like it. Neither of the links you provided are for pre-wired units so make sure that you are comfortable wiring one using an extension cord (its easy though)

Looks like the Johnson has a programmable anti-short-cycle delay. If you want to use it to drive a freezer or AC unit, that might be nice.
